Littleton, Ma - Nov 20, 2006 - Burk Technology is now shipping the Arc Plus broadcast facility remote control system. Built on TCP/IP architecture, the Burk Arc Plus provides remote monitoring and control for one to 1,024 sites. Broadcasters can access the system via software, Web browser, telephone or front panel, with site-to-site control allowing equipment management from any location. SNMP network management is built into Burk Technology's Autopilot Plus software to broaden the system's monitoring and control capabilities.
Input channels can be added independently from command channels for cost efficiency. Alarms can be assigned different priorities and directed to selective e-mail and dial-out lists, assuring the proper personnel are notified of trouble conditions. Integrated transient protection and RFI resistance ensures reliability in real-world, lightning-prone environments. Automatic routines are embedded in the main Arc Plus unit and run without a dedicated PC.
Autopilot Plus software provides PC-based real-time monitoring, control and report generation with a customizable user interface. Drill-down and map-based displays provide dashboard-style summary reporting. For managing IT infrastructure and broadcast equipment side-by-side, the Autopilot Plus Network Manager provides condition reporting for network PCs, servers, printers and hubs, including SNMP devices.
The Arc Plus can be added to an existing group of Arc-16 systems.
